COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

22.11.2015, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is mild fruity, leafs, wet grass, dried fruits, hops, sap, minerals, orange, light malts. Taste is slightly dry grassy, leafs, grass, light malts, hops, sap, minerals, grassy chillies. Medium bitterness, slightly dry grassy chili mouthfeel with a pretty fast longlasting chili touch to it. Fair enough.

gunnar (7754) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat.Pours hazy dark golden with a big creamy white head. Spicy malty aroma at first, develops into distinct hot pepper. Taste is good soft malty to start with, but quiclky turns into a hot habanero burn, long lasting and totally dominates all malty elements. Nice beer in a way, will def purchase some more bottles.

MadRobin (2797) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Hazy, amber gold with a 1-finger pale dusty-yellow head and good lacing. Aroma of apricot, orange, grapefruit and caramel. Taste of fiery hot habanero peppers, a lingering pepper burn and eventually tropical fruit, citrus and caramel. I like hot habaneros in food, but it destroys the beer for me. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One time Honkey texted me and said something like, "I bought a six pack of habanero sculpin. I drank 1 of em, and now I have 5 that I don’t know what to do with." And this dude’s got a damn cat named Habanero. So I just got a single bottle. The heat definitely hits you in the back of the throat, but it’s not unpleasant. A bit of the base beer comes through, but mostly it’s just heat and pepper. It’s aight.

after4ever (7540) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Tap at SB. Pours a hazy medium gold with orange highlights. Creamy off-white head that sticks around for a while. Bright oranges and grapefruit on the nose, clear spicy pepper note coming through with the orange-y note from the habs. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Light caramel, oranges, grapefruit, and heat on the mid palate. Long hot dry finish. More fun to mix with other beers than to drink by itself, but it certainly has a devoted following all its own.

Aroma is grapefruit/pine, citrus hops and a hint of spicy heat. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus and then the habanero takes over...

DuchessOfIowa (161) - Iowa, USA - NOV 17, 2015
On draft. Golden yellow hue with descent white head that has medium lacing. Apricot and orange hints quickly become outdone by the heat. Its a fun experiment to get creative with what beer can be but this becomes undrinkable after a couple sips. Subtlety could play a better role here. Still fun to see the boundaries pushed, so no fault in that.

ABS (883) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Amber body. Some white head. Grapefruit, citrus, malt nose. Grapefruit, lemon, citrus flavour. After a couple of seconds, a heavy chili warmth completely destroys every other flavour. Some malt flavour. Medium, oily body. Quite soft carbonation. Bottle is way to old, Vinmonopolet and the swedish importer should know better!

ON bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Slightly hazy golden color. HIgh aroma intensity; habanero completely dominates (and makes you sweat), also hops, caramel , some fruitienss and vanilla. Medium body & complexity. Good bitterness and balance. Enjoyable, but spicy as hell!

RickFifty (1020) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
Clear amber color, big tan head. Quite ordinary nose with grapefruit, caramel, tropical fruit and a hint of chili. Caramel and tropical fruit taste at first, then the chili kicks in. The taste of chili is heavy and dominant, grapefruit is noticed somewhere between the heat waves which last and last all the way to the back of the throat. The bitterness is neutralized by the warmth. Medium body, soft carbonation, warming chili.
